This availability calendar is provided to allow you to see at a glance the dates I have open or booked.

To avoid a "double booking" situation, I do not offer online reservations.  Instead I ask you to call, text, or email me so we can agree on your dates and discuss your expectations.

I typically offer two trips per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  Mornings are typically the most productive. Morning trips begin around sunrise and go for 4+ hours.  Afternoon trips begin about 3.75 hours before sunset and go until about 15 minutes afterwards.
